5 Closet Staples You Need

DSC_0074My wardrobe is pretty simple, filled with a lot of basics and staples. While I do occasionally opt for a statement blouse or fun dress I like to stick with simple pieces. For me, having a closet full of staples makes it so much easier to get ready in the mornings as almost anything will go together.

After cleaning out my closet for spring and summer I started thinking about the staple pieces that are most important to my wardrobe. So today I am rounding up my 5 top closet staples that I couldn’t to without!

DSC_0069Fitted Blazer: For me a blazer is a major closet staple. I wear blazers to work, out to dinner and even on the weekends. What I love about blazers is that they go with nearly everything and they are a great way to add a little prep or dressiness to your outfit.

DSC_0086Perfect Jeans: For years jeans were my enemy. I could not find a pair that fit well to save my life. I tried SO many different brands, cuts, and sizes. I hated wearing jeans because I felt like I just couldn’t win. That was until I found my perfect pair.

DSC_0082Classic Button Down:  Like a fitted blazer this is another staple for me. It is something I can wear to work with a skirt and nice pants (even under a blazer) or on the weekends with jeans or shorts and cuffed sleeves for a more casual look. I stick to the basic colors for my buttons downs (white, blue, blue and white stripe) that way they remain a versatile and functional piece.

DSC_0087Comfortable Flats: Flats are an every day shoe for me and therefor a major staple. Since I wear them so often it is important that they be comfortable but not too casual. I like to have a black pair and a nude or tan pair as well so that I can wear them with almost anything. A comfortable pair of flats is even better if they can be worn with jeans and a tee just as easily as they can be paired with a skirt or dress.

DSC_0076Simple Heels: I wear heels about once a week either to work or out to dinner (sometimes more depending on weekly events). While I do have a few fun pairs that are a little less practical, I have simple and classic pairs in nude and black. These heels go with everything; jeans, dress pants and dresses. A versatile pair of heels is definitely a must as you can wear them for all occasions.DSC_0066.JPGThese are all items that can be worn for so many different occasions and with several different outfit styles from casual to dressy.
